The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you bring your child in to see us by his/her first birthday.Teeth can start to decay from the moment they erupt; so proper care is essential right from the very first tooth. Tooth decay is the most common chronic illness in children and can have a profound impact on a child's health and quality of life.The sooner children begin getting regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay.
Your child's primary teeth(baby teeth) help him/her to bite ,chew and speak .They also serve as a guide for eruption of permanent (adult) teeth. If not taken care of, they can decay and fall early, thereby compromising the space for the permanent teeth, and also causing infection in the mouth.
